Was at St Peter’s UMC in Katy Texas this week to help them launch CheckPoint. They did a great job of setting up check in stations for their members. Advertisements It has been forever since I shared anything out here. I have been sooo busy on the road I just have not had the time. I am on the road all the time and seem like I am always in a rent car. Being a frequent renter has it’s priviledges.
They recently launched check in for their kids and are moving their calendar over to facility scheduler and launching access ACS as well. Kathy and Randy have their hands full for sure. I was able to sit in on a staff worship and staff meeting and her all of the wonderful ministry opportunities happening there. They are getting ready for their ministry fair coming up which has the theme “serve town”.
What really impressed me was their mastering of the use of Facebook and integrating it with their website. Through series of PHP scripts they feel various parts of their many Facebook pages to their website. It works well and provides a seamless way to post information in Facebook and still feed it to places on their site. Check it out – ccv website. Went to First Federated Church in Des Moines Iowa last week.
I know what you are thinking… “sounds more like a bank” They know… It is over 100 years old and started as a non denominational church reaching out to the greater Des Moines area so the name seemed appropriate. Now for the kicker… The church with a name like a bank, bought the local middle school for their facility. They have lockers and everything! It is nice as they have two gyms, the cafeteria has been converted into a coffee house and this building was made when stuff was built to last forever… The school was built in the 40’s and was sold to First Federated in 1987.
It is really a neat campus. They added a 4200 seat sanctuary and several other improvements. It is neat to see some of the names of people they have hosted, such as Mercy Me and Mike Huckabee. They are preparing to launch online giving and event registration as well as an outreach program. Lots of work to do but it is exciting to see! So if your church is looking for a building, drive by your local schools and look for “FOR SALE” signs.
They make great campuses. I have been working with a Large Church in Naples Florida that has an attendance of about 3k… Well, at least right now. Come fall they kick it into overdrive and swell by a couple of thousand or more. Why all the extra people?? Snowbirds! Naples swells in population every fall only to see all of them head back north every spring. This creates all kinds of issues in tracking members and guests but they do an awesome job! issues like “memebership”, outreach, contributions and the like are just some of the things that have to be addressed.
Hopefully their new “First Connect” will help them as members can log in from anywhere and stay up to date on all the stuff at FBC Naples. Here are a few of pics of their facility. Ran across a neat tool while at FBC Naples. www.geobatch.com This tool will allow you to copy and paste an excel with multiple addresses and map all of it on one map in less than 60 seconds. Pretty cool stuff.
Today I was able to be with Covenant Presbyterian as they had their grand opening. Below are some pics I took of the event. Everyone was really excited about their incredible facility. Some extras – I added screen savers to the kiosks and set them to come on after 2 minutes. I had 9 different images loaded into the “My Pictures” folder and then set the screen saver mode to My Pictures.
I customized the checkin screen for use in various areas at different times. Everything went well and all the members were very excited about the system.
